Ask Me

"Ask Me" is a community-based education program utilizing volunteer partners to promote breast cancer screenings. The goal of the "Ask Me" program is to increase the number of women receiving mammograms. Ask Me About a Mammogram


  • Volunteers will wear an apron or button/pin/sticker that has the "Ask Me" logo on them. When someone inquires about what "Ask Me" is or asks for information about breast cancer screenings, volunteers hand them a card with more information about breast cancer screenings.

  • Volunteers do not have to be an expert at breast cancer screenings. They will simply be telling the person that by calling the number on the card, they can receive more information about free breast cancer screenings for women who qualify financially.

  • Volunteers/Employers can choose how often they want to promote the "Ask Me" program. For example, one site might choose the first week of every month, while another site does the first Monday of every month. Another site might choose to do it for a whole month. There is flexibility in this program.

For more information about the "Ask Me" program, contact the program coordinator.
